Colorado State athletic official: Football players feel more like “cattle than student-athletes”

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports more than one football player and at least one athletics department official believes Colorado State University is covering up coronavirus fears.

“I believe there is a cover-up going on at CSU,” said a current football player who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. “But they could only cover it up so long and now that we have so many cases across athletics, they can’t cover it up anymore. It’s not about the health and safety of the players but about just trying to make money off the players.”

The news from Colorado comes one day after multiple college football players expressed fears they were being “gaslit” about the danger of playing the sport this fall.
